    well, it started getting a little warm in here and we got a new baby so the wife turned it down to 70. the other pointer is on 86 right now but it really is hot out today. 99 is what it said in my pickup thermometer. we'll see how it does now.

    my brother isn't a plumber, he drives otr for jb hunt, he's been there almost 10 years now.

    Not to worry about that frost, that's how the system gets the cold air. By the way, in the winter your furnace may have a continuous flame around it as well. Again, not to worry, that's just how it works.

    I've been trying to read up on some of the other stories here and it sounds like frosting or ice on the coil might be a clogged filter? I've looked around but don't see one, so either that's not the trouble or I just can't find it.

    I guess if I can't fix this I'll call a repair shop Monday.

    I called a guy I work with and he said it just wasn't carrying the cold into the house. Can I just hose it off?

    thanks for that.

    even if it's not a heat pump I can still hose it down with water?

    I tried to pull a cover off it to find the filter to see if it's dirty but all those panels are froze on. I found some more articles in here about dirty filter making the coil ice so now I think that's what it is.

    Thanks again

    Hint: the filter is located inside... assuming there is one.

    DO NOT defrost it with a hose.Go get yourself a screwdriver and stab all the ice off of it.

    I see some frost is getting on the coil and when I told my best friend who is a neighbor, he said he didn't think it should be frosting, but wasn't sure.

    I think it's not the problem, I figured air conditioners get really cold so some frosting is okay.

    If anyone can tell me for sure if this the problem, I thank you. If you need anymore details I'll do the best I can to get them.

    low on refrigerant(which might be due to a leak somewhere in the system) or low air flow
